I'm not involved in kernel hacking, but I've tried several times to
start writing patches. Because of time sharing issue I haven't get to
the end but a tutorial will be great.
The question I've asked me during my several tries is where can I be
useful (which topics, what I'm confident enough in to play with...).

Looking in drivers/staging wasn't any help in my case and making
kernel janitor is useful but not very well viewed as I've heard.

So I think that digging further in your tutorial on several ways to
start kernel hacking may be interesting.
